Communications from the Mayor and

Branches of the City Government. 

question as to number of votes nec- 
essary TO PASS AN ordinance. 

His Honor, the Mayor, presented the 
following communication : 

Office of the Mayor. | 
Chicago, Aug. 14, 1912. j 

To the Eonorable, the City Gounc'il: 

Gentlemen — I transmit herewith to 
your Honorable Body a communication 
from the Corporation Counsel with ref- 
erence to the status of an ordinance 
which received the votes of thirty- five 
Aldermen in favor of its passage, there 
being at the present time but sixty- 
nine members elected in the City Coun- 
cil. 

Yours respectfully, 
(Signed) ^ Carter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

Law Department, | 
Chicago, Aug. 9, il912. ] 

Eon. Garter E. Earrison, Mayor: 

Dear Sir — You made a verbal request 
for an opinion as to the status of an 
ordinance which received the votes of 
thirty-five Aldermen in favor of its pas- 
sage, there being at the present time 
but sixty-nine members elected in the 
City Council. 

Section 13, Article 3, of the Cities 
and Villages Act, relating to the taking 
of yeas and nays upon the passage of all 
ordinances or propositions creating a 
liability against the city, or for the ex- 
penditure or appropriation of money, 
specifically provides that: 

"The concurrence of a majority of 

all the members elected to the City 

Council shall be necessary to the pas- 



sage of any such ordinance or prop- 
osition." 

The Supreme Court in the case of 
McLean v. City of East St. Louis, 22.2 
111. 510, 513j has recently interpreted 
the section and article above referred 
to and passed particularly upon the 
meaning of the language quoted. In this 
case it was expressly decided that a 
vacancy in the City Council did not de- * 
crease the number of votes required for 
a majority. The case further decides 
that the Mayor cannot be counted in or- 
der to make a quorum in the City Coun- 
cil, nor is he entitled to vote except 
in case of a tie. 

At the present time by law the City 
Council of the City of Chicago consists 
of seventy members to be elected from 
the thirty-five existing wards. Thirty- 
six votes are necessary to constitute the 
statutory majority in favor of any or- 
dinance. This is true even if as at 
present there are but sixty-nine mem- 
bers elected in the City Council by rea- 
son of a vacancy. It is immaterial 
whether the vacancy is due to resigna- 
tion, death, or any other cause. The 
Mayor is without authority under the 
statute to add his vote to the votes of 
thirty-five Aldermen in favor of an or- 
dinance passed under these conditions, 
and it cannot be said that an ordinance 
receiving thirty-five votes in the City 
Council under such conditions has been 
passed ly a tie vote of the Aldermen 
and the deciding vote of the Mayor. 

Yours respectfully, 
(Signed) Maclay Hoyne, 

Acting Corporation Counsel. 

The Mayor thereupon announced that 
an ordinance amending Section 733 of 
The Chicago Code of 1911, published on 
pages 1&69 and 1670 of the Journal of 
July 22, 1912, with reference to the sale 
of cigarettes near school houses, hav- 
ing received only 35 "yea" votes, failed 
to pass (the decision of the question as 
to its passage having been reserved by 
the Mayor — see page 1670 of the Jour- 
nal). 

His Honor, the Mayor, presented the 
following communication : 

Office of the Mayor. | 
Chicago, Aug. 14, 1912. ] 
To the Eonorahle, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — In conformity with the 
law, I hereby appoint A. 1. Goldstein as

ALSO, 

The following communication, which 
was ordered published and referred to 
the Committee on Harbors, Wharves 
and Bridges: 

Office of the Mayor, | 
Chicago, Aug. 14, 1912. j 

To the Honorable, the City Council of 
the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — I have the honor to 
transmit the following statement show- 
ing the present status of the proposed 
North Shore Harbor, otherwise de- 
scribed as Harbor District Number 1, 
and pointing out the difficulties which 
confront the city in undertaking imme- 
diate oonstruction work on said har- 
bor. 

Under the plans prepared by the 
Harbor and Subway Commission for 
Harbor District Number 1, it was pro- 
posed to construct three piers extending 



generally in an easterly direction from 
the land north of the mouth of the Chi- 
cago river. Two of these piers as 
planned by the Commission would ex- 
tend from land bounded on the north 
by Indiana /street and on the south 
by the Chicago River. 

James A. Pugh claims possession of 
the east 15 feet of the land in ques- 
tion, bordering on Lake Michigan, un- 
der a lease from the Chicago Dock and 
Canal Company, dated May 1, il909, for 
a period of 99 years. If the Chicago 
Dock and Canal Company has the legal 
title to this strip in question, it is the 
owner of, and James A. Pugh, its lessee, 
is entitled to the enjoyment of the ripa- 
rian rights which attach to said 15- 
foot strip. The length of this strip is 
about 1,000 feet. 

The Chicago Dock and Canal Company 
claims to be the legal owner of the 
land in question and of all the land 
immediately west of the same extend- 
ing back along both sides of the Mich- 
igan Canal to St. Clair street. 

About July 1st of this year the Law 
Department furnished opinions to Al- 
derman Littler, the Chairman of the 
Committee on Harbors, Wharves and 
Bridges, and to me as Mayor, relating 
to the title, rights and claims of the 
Chicago Dock and Canal Company. The 
conclusions summarized in these opin- 
ions were, briefly, as follows: 

1st. That all of the lands above 
mentioned which were artificially made 
by filling, etc., were not made as a re- 
sult of any legal exercise of the powers 
of the company under its charter and 
have not become the property of the 
company, because of the limitation con- 
tained in Section 6 of its charter, that 
all of the company's lands should "lie 
and be situated in Kinzie's Addition". 
The company under its charter had no 
power to interfere with navigation or 
artificially make any lands by filling 
up Lake Michigan. 

2nd. The company was only entitled 
to hold 5,0 acres of laird in Kinzie's 
Addition to the City of Chicago, and 
it could only obtain these lands by pur- 
chase. It had no power under its char- 
ter to hold lands in excess of 50 acres, 
and if it filled land so that there was 
an excess, it could take no title to the 
excess. Therefore, if the strip of land 
in question should be decided to be ex- 
cess land, neither the company nor Mr. 



1688 



SPECIAL 



MEOETING. 



August 14, 1912. 



Pugh has any title, but the title is in 
the State of Illinois. 

3rd. It follows from these charter 
provisions that the title to all re- 
claimed lands and to all lands in ex- 
cess of 50 acres in Kinzie's Addition, is 
in the State of Illinois, subject to the 
right of the City of Chicago to keep 
open and extend Illinois and Indiana 
streets to the lake. 

4th. If the Chicago Dock and Canal 
Company and Mr. Pugh have no title 
or right to the strip of land in ques- 
tion, because it was artificially made 
land, it follows that neither of them 
have any ownership of or right, to the 
enjoyment of any riparian rights along 
the shore line between the mouth of the 
Chicago River and Indiana street. 

5th. That the adoption of the Con- 
stitution of 1870 had the effect to re- 
voke all special licenses, privileges or 
powers contained in the private charter 
of the Chicago Dock and Canal Com- 
pany to construct further harbors, piers 
or docks. 

6th. That in order to construct a 
harbor, docks and other appurtenances 
in Harbor District Number 1, the City 
of Chicago should procure from the 
General Assembly a grant of all the 
lands reclaimed and- artificially made, 
the title to which is vested in the State 
of Illinois, and the right to sue any 
person, firm or corporation for the re- 
covery or possession of such lands. 

In view of these opinions from the 
Law Department, the City Administra- 
tion and the Harbor Commission are in 
a serious dilemma. 

The strip of land claimed by Mr. 
Pngh under his lease is desired or 
needed for Harbor District Number 1. 
If the title of this strip of land is in 
the State of Illinois, and neither the 
Chicago Dock and Canal Company nor 
Mr. Pugh have any title, right or in- 
terest therein, the title being in the 
State of Illinois, the City of Chicago 
cannot obtain the same from the State 
by condemnation, for there is no power 
to condemn State land. 

It must obtain a grant from the Gen- 
eral Assembly of the strip of land in 
question and the riparian rights of the 
State or it must proceed in construct- 
ing the Harbor to use the said strip 
of land and ignore the claims of the 
Dock Company and Mr. Pugh in the 
hope or expectation that the State of 



Illinois will interpose no objection to 
the construction and maintenance of a 
harbor at the place indicated. 

If the courts should decide that the 
city Law Department was in error in 
some of its conclusions as to the lack 
of title in the Chicago Dock and Canal 
Company, but should sustain the Law 
Department in its contention that the 
strip of land desired was artificially 
made land, the City of Chicago could 
neither purchase said strip of land and 
the riparian rights nor obtain the same 
by condemnation, because Section 7 of 
the Harbor Act, which gives to the city 
the right to condemn property along 
the lake and the riparian rights at- 
taching to such property forbids the 
"city the right to give compensation 
to any alleged riparian owner who is 
not in fact the owner of said land or 
who has unlawfully acquired title 
thereto by possession or by making or 
filling the same, and such city shall 
make a careful scrutiny of the title 
of each and every person so claiming 
compensation to the end that no per- 
son shall receive compensation for lands 
or rights which already belong to the 
State of Illinois." 

Under the language of the statute 
just quoted it thus appears that the 
city not only cannot, of course, condemn 
artificially made land which by reason 
of being so made would belong to the 
State of Illinois, but it cannot even in 
the settlement of disputes obtain land 
by purchase unless it is clear that the 
person to whom the money is to be paid 
did not fill up the land to which he 
claims title and in connection with 
which he claims riparian rights. 

Under Section 1 of the Harbor Act, 
which gives to the city the power to 
purchase and condemn real and per- 
sonal property for harbor purposes, the 
property which can be purchased is lim- 
ited to that which is "owned by per- 
sons, firms or private corporations and 
all rights, terms, easements and priv- 
ileges pertaining thereto." 

While Section 7 of the Harbor Act 
does not expressly forbid the purchase 
by private agreement of the titles, 
claims or rights of persons who are 
not in fact the owners of property to be 
purchased, it probably does so by im- 
plication as noted above. 

The only possible state of facts under 
which the City of Chicago could ob- 



August 14, 1912. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



'L689 



tain by condemnation the strip of prop- 
erty it desires is that it appear that 
the strip of land was not artificially 
made or not unlawfully acquired by the 
company in any other manner and that 
the company has good title thereto. 
The facts appear to be otherwise. The 
City of Chicago and the Harbor Com- 
mission, therefore, seem to be helpless 
in the premises and must await further 
legislation from the State. There is 
nothing, however, to prevent the city 
to proceed immediately to open Illi- 
nois and Indiana streets to the snore 
line of Lake Michigan by condemnation 
proceedings brought independently of 
any provision in the Harbor Act. By 
means of these proceedings it will be 
learned in whom is vested the title to 



the shore lands and the title to the 
riparian rights, required by the City 
of Chicago as a location for Harbor 
District Number '1. An ordinance for 
the opening of these streets is now be- 
ing prepared by the City Law Depart- 
ment.

If all of the foregoing provisions 
have been complied with, and the pas- 
teurizer or pasteurizing equipment is 
such that 99 per cent of all bacteria 
and all pathogenic bacteria are 
killed in the milk treated therein at 
the temperature required in para- 
graphs (j) and (1) of Article B of 
this ordinance, the Commissioner of 
Health shall issue a permit allowing 
the milk, cream, skim milk or but- 
termilk pasteurized in such pasteur-

therein is obtained from farms that 
do not comply with the requirements 
as set forth in Article B of this ordi- 
nance or from farms which have not 
been inspected and found to comply 
with said requirements by the Com- 
missioner of Health. 

In case of dispute in regard to 
tests made of such pasteurizer or pas- 
teurizing equipment or in regard to 
the temperature to which the milk 
shall be heated, the person, firm or 
corporation making application to 
operate a pasteurizer may make ap- 
plication to the Commissioner of

corporation owning or operating said 
pasteurizer, and in case of failure or 
inability to agree the two to select 
a third. 

(i) In all continuous pasteuriza- 
tion the milk and cream shall be 
heated to a temperature which shall 
be determined and fixed by the Com- 
missioner of Health for each machine 
at a point corresponding to a tempera- 
ture required to kill 99 per cent of 
the bacteria and all pathogenic bac- 
teria contained in the raw product, 



1708

and shall show no colon bacilli in 
1 c. c. as determined by cultural 
methods. 

All continuous pasteurizers shall be 
equipped with feeding pipe which is 
so constructed that the pasteurizer 
cannot be fed in excess of its normal 
wwking capacity, that is, in excess 
of the working capacity of the ma- 
chine at which 99 per cent of the 
bacteria are killed when the required 
amount of heat is applied. 

A recording apparatus shall be in- 
stalled upon all pasteurizers to re- 
cord during opei;ation the temperature 
of the pasteurized product as it flows 
from the heater. The thermometer 
of this recording apparatus must be 
accurate and kept submerged in the 
milk in such a way that it is not ex- 
posed to escaping steam or other heat, 
except the heated milk, provided, 
that if the pasteurizing is done in 
bottles or in other final containers 
the temperature recording apparatus 
musi be attached and adjusted in a 
manner so as to accurately record 
the temperature to which the milk, 
cream, skim milk, or buttermilk is 
raised, and the duration of time for 
■which said temperature is main- 
tained. 

The records made by this record- 
ing thermometer must be accurate 
and made in a chamber which is kept 
under lock and key in the control of 
the Commissioner of Health. 

The mechanism of the pasteurizer 
or pasteurizing system shall be such 
that the three important elements, 
namely, the temperature, time of ex- 
posure and the quantity of milk ex- 
posed at one time can be readily 
kept under control and observation 
by the Commissioner of Health. 

(j) The following conditions as to 
degrees of heat and time of exposure 
shall be complied with : 

A uniform heating of 140 degrees 
Fahrenheit for 20 minutes, or 150 de- 
grees Fahrenheit maintained for 15 
minutes, or IV55 degrees Fahrenheit 
maintained for 5 minutes, or 160 de- 
grees Fahrenheit maintained for IVo 
minutes, or 165 degrees Fahrenheit 
maintained for 1 minute. The time 
shall be calculated from the period 
that the entire quantity reaches the 
required temperature. 

(k) All milk, cream, skim milk 



or buttermilk produced and handled in 
the manner required in Article B of 
this section shall be labeled "Pasteur- 
ized Milk," "Pasteurized Cream," 
"Pasteurized Skim Milk," or "Pas- 
teurized Buttermilk," as the case may 
be, in letters not less than 3/16 of an 
inch high on the cap or cover of every 
package, when contained in bottles 
or receptacles of a similar character, 
and not less than % of an inch high 
on a tag attached to each container, 
when contained in cans, together with 
a serial number corresponding with 
the number of the permit given by 
the Commissioner of Health to the 
person, firm or corporation for the 
pasteurizer or plant pasteurizing 
said milk, cream, skim milk or but- 
termilk, and the cap or stopper of 
the bottles or receptacles of a simi- 
lar character in which said pas- 
teurized milk, cream, skim milk or 
buttermilk shall be contained shall be 
plainly marked with the name of the 
day of the week upon which said milk, 
cream, skim milk or buttermilk en- 
closed in said bottles or receptacles of 
a similar character was pasteurized, 
provided, that it shall be unlaw^ful for 
any person, firm or corporation to 
mark, cause to be marked, or per- 
mit to be marked upon any bot- 
tle or receptacle of similar char- 
acter containing pasteurized milk, 
cream, skim milk or buttermilk 
the name of any other day than that 
upon which the contents enclosed 
in bottles or containers of similar 
character was pasteurized. 

(1) After January 1, 1914, all 
milk, cream, skim milk or butter- 
milk which is not of the grade or 
kind defined in this section as "In- 
spected" shall be pasteurized at a 
temperature of not less than iMO de- 
grees Fahrenheit for not less than 20 
minutes or not less than 155 degrees 
Fahrenheit for not less than 5 min- 
utes. 

(m) The pasteurized product shall 
be cooled at once to a temperature of 
45 degrees Fahrenheit or below. This 
cooling shall be so conducted that the 
pasteurized product is not exposed to 
possible sources of contamination. This 
cooling apparatus shall be so con- 
structed that it can be readily cleaned 
and sterilized. 

Milk, cream or skim milk shall be 
enclosed in tightly capped bottles or 
packages of a similar character, or

Office of the Mayor, | 
Chicago, Sept. 30, 1912. j 

To the Honordhle, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I return herewith with- 
out my approval an ordinance passed at 
the last meeting of your Honorable 
Body, granting permission to the Chi- 
cago Butchers Packing Company to in- 
stall a 5-inch refrigerating water pipe 
across the street, for the reasons given 
in attached communication from the 
Bureau of Compensation, and would 
suggest the reference of the ordinance 
to an appropriate committee for con- 
sideration. 

Yours respectfully, 
(Signed) Caeter H. Harrison, 

Mayor. 

The following communication was 
submitted with the foregoing message: 

Department of Public Works, ] 
Bureau of Compensation, }- 
Chicago, August 17, 1912. J 

Hon. Carter H. Harrison, Mayor. 

Dear Sir — I beg to call your atten- 
tion to an ordinance passed by the City 
Council at the last meeting, held Wed- 
nesday, August 13th, granting permis- 
sion to the Chicago Butchers Packing 
Company to install a 5-inch refrigerat- 
ing water pipe across the street. The 
ordinance as passed by the City Coun- 
cil contains no provision for compensa- 
tion. 

I was unable to see the original or- 
dinance, but am under the impression 
there was no blue print attached to 
same. On that account I feel it would 
be best to have the ordinance vetoed 
and considered in the committee before 
final action by the Council. 

Yours truly, 
(Signed) H. V. McGurren, 

Superintendent.

Aid. Richert moved to reconsider the 



vote by which the said ordinance, ve- 
toed by His Honor, the Mayor, was

ordinance to the Committee on Streets 
and Alleys, Taxation and Street No- 
menclature.

To the Honorahle, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — I transmit herewith an 
order rescinding an order passed by 
your Honorable Body May 13th, order- 
ing the Chicago Telephone Company and 
the Commonwealth Edison Company to 
vacate poles and wires in the alley 
bounded by Blackhawk street, North 
Ashland avenue, Milwaukee avenue and 
Dickson street. 

I am advised by the City Electrician 
that neither of these companies has 
been compelled to place wires under- 
ground in any alleys in the city and 
that it would be a hardship to force 
them to comiply with this order. I 
would recommend the reference of the 
attaclied order to your Committee on 
Gas, Oil and Electric Light. 

Yours respectfully,

Law Department, / 
Chicago, September 4, 1912. ( 

In re work of Law Department before 
the Board of Review. 

Hon. Carter H. Harrison, Mayor. 

Dear Sir— We respectfully submit 
the following report concerning the ac- 
tivities of the Law Department in con- 
nection with the work of the Board of 
Review for the current year: 

The Board of Review met for the 



12. 



September 30, 1912. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



1731 



purpose of hearing complaints on July 
10th, and held daily sessions until Au- 
gust 24th. This department undertook 
to have a representative attend these 
sessions, with a view to looking after 
the interests- of the city in securing as 
nearly as possible a full valuation of 
property, for taxing purposes. 

The most important part of the work 
before us necessarily consisted in mak- 
ing investigations for the purpose of 
discovering property that was escaping 
taxation or was undervalued. The 
time for filing complaints in such mat- 
ters is limited by law to August 1st. 
The work of the Board of Review must 
be done in so short a time and the field 
to be covered is so large, that it was 
practicable to devote the few weeks we 
had for these investigations and com- 
plaints to matters which stood out 
most conspicuously. Some of the facts 
were accessible in public documents, 
others were found in investors' guides 
and manuals, or in publications devoted 
to financial matters relating to the bus- 
iness investigated. We also looked up 
a few real estate valuations with good 
results. Aside from this we brought 
to bear such personal knowledge of 
conditions as comes within the range 
of general observation. 

As a result of these investigations 
this department filed 244 complaints on 
behalf of the city. These complaints 
related to a great variety of occupa- 
tions, in spite of the fact that the in- 
vestigations had to be conducted only 
by means of data readily ascertainable 
along the lines indicated above. 

The most important complaints filed 
were directed against certain banks. 
Under the law these institutions should 
be assessed on their capital stock, sur- 
plus and undivided profits, from which 
the valuation of the real estate which 
they lawfully hold is to be deducted. 

A number of the banks had made a 
practice of filing schedules of their cap- 
italization, from the totals of which 
they deducted the valuations placed on 
the buildings in which they were lo- 
cated, although such buildings were ac- 
tually owned by safety deposit com- 
panies regularly incorporated. The 
banks had loaned money for the pur- 
pose of building, but it was money on 
deposit and did not impair their cap- 
ital. The claim put forth in their be- 
half was that it would be double tax- 
ation to tax the building and to tax 



the capital of the bank. The law does 
not contemplate that a banking insti- 
tution should rent from a safety de- 
posit company and then take advantage 
of the fact that the safety deposit com- 
pany owns the building, in order to re- 
duce its own taxes. Many of the 
banks so situated admit this by filing 
schedules containing their full capital 
without deducting the value of the bank 
building. 

This is an important matter which 
the Board of Review took under ad- 
visement after it was argued, and its 
decision has not yet been announced. 
In case the reviewers decide as we con- 
tend they should, it would add some- 
thing like $15,000,000 to the total val- 
uation of personal property in the city. 
If they should decide against our con- 
tention, we will probably raise the 
question in the courts through man- 
damus proceedings. 

Among the complaints filed were a 
number against the personal property 
valuations of the railroads, especially 
the Illinois corporations. We also filed 
several complaints against certain real 
estate valuations of the railroads in 
schedule "D," which are assessed by 
the local authorities. We complained 
of several estates which were not val- 
ued in accordance with the reports 
made in the Probate Court. We made 
a large number of complaints against 
corporations which were listed in the 
manuals from which we obtained infor- 
mation as to values. We also made 
a large number of complaints against 
mercantile and financial houses that 
seemed from their commercial ratings 
to be undervalued. 

The hearings on these complaints 
were brief and hurried. A great mass 
of complaints come before the board 
in the time allotted for its work and 
not much time can be given to any in- 
dividual case. Nevertheless, the re- 
sults were most satisfactory. Many of 
the complaints filed by us led to enor- 
mous increases in the valuations. 

If you should require it, we can fur- 
nish you a complete list of increases in 
valuations made by the Board of Re- 
view in response to the complaints filed 
by us. Although this would require 
considerable time, since in the hurry of 
hearing these matters before three 
persons it was impossible to keep track 
of the results in each case, and the 



1732 COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



books would have to be examined for 
the purpose. 

From the figures jotted down from 
time to time while these hearings were 
in progress we think we are safe in 
saying that at least two and one-half 
millions of dollars were added to 
valuations as a direct result of the 
complaints which were disposed of 
within the hearing of the writer and 
in Avhich he participated. A partial list 
of some of the important changes was 
compiled, showing increases running 
from $25,000 to $130,000. There were 
also a large number of smaller (in- 
creases which were not taken down at 
the time on account of the rush of 
work which had to be handled. 

We believe that the ascertainable in- 
creases, however, form but a small part 
of the actual value of the work per- 
formed. The knowledge that the Cor- 
poration Counsel's office was vigilant 
and active undoubtedly had a splen- 
did effect in deterring persons from en- 
deavoring to secure lower valuations 
than they were entitled to. 

The Board of Review adjourned on 
August 24th, but will convene later to 
take up capital stock valuations. We 
will participate in that work also, and 
expect to accomplish much for the ben- 
efit of the city in securing fair valua- 
tions on these. 

Yours respectfully, 
(Signed) Leon Hoenstein, 

Assistant Corporation Counsel.

Corporation Counsel. 

ALSO, 

A communication transmitting the 
following report from the Prosecuting 
Attorney, which was referred to the 
Committee on Health: 

Office of Prosecuting Attorney, ) 
Chicago, September 25, 1912. | 

Hon. Carter H. Harrison, Mayor. 

Ddear Sir— The situation this year in 
reference to unmuzzled dogs is ap- 
palling, as you will notice from the 
comparative report herewith enclosed. 

Under the terms of the existing or- 
dinance, *'a dog is not a nuisance unless 
he bites a person or so injures a person 
as to cause an abrasion of the skin." 



September 30, 1912. 

I am informed that a diagnosis shows 
seventy-five per cent of the bites show 
rabies. The ordinance is not as ef- 
fective as it sould be, and I would sug- 
gest that you recommend the enact- 
ment of a more effective measure. 
There aTe two ways, in my opinion, to 
bring about a reduction of this dan- 
ger. The Council might enact an or- 
dinance giving the police a right to de- 
stroy unmuzzled dogs running at large, 
or the Council Committee on State 
Legislation next winter should urge the 
Legislature to enact a law that would 
provide that in all cities of one hun- 
dred thousand inhabitants or over, the 
owner or keeper of a dog who permits 
the same to run at large unmuzzled 
should be fined for each offense the sum 
not exceeding fifty dollars or be given 
ten days in the County Jail, and I feel 
sure that this would have its effect. 

I am inclined to believe that this 
would be a better way of dealing with 
this situation than the former. If we 
could enlist the co-operation of the OAvn- 
ers of valuable dogs, who usually keep 
their dogs muzzled and cared for, I 
feel that there would not be much 
opposition to a measure of this kind. 

However, Mr. Mayor, the figures 
speak for themselves, and* some drastic 
measure must be enacted in the veiry 
near future if this dangerous situation 
is to be removed. 

Yours truly, 
(Signed) James S. McInerney, 

Prosecuting Attorney.

Though not required by the rules of 
your Honorable Body to make note of 
the reasons for absences from commit- 
tee meetings, I deem it only fair to the 
Aldermen concerned to report the fol- 
lowing facts, which have been called 
to my attention: 

Aid. Harding was absent from a meet- 
ing of the Committee on Schools. Fire, 
Police and Civil Service held April 30th. 
The chairman stated that Aid. Hard- 
ing had previously explained his ina- 
bility to attend that meeting. On May 
10th, the Alderman was absent from a 
meeting of the Committee on Compen- 
sation and the chairman stated that 
he was out of the city as a member of 
the Giarbage Commisjsion. This feet 
explains his non-attendance at meet- 
ings of the Special Park Commission 
on May 8th and May 15th and of the 
Committee on Schools, Fire, Police and 
Civil Service on May 13th. 

Aid. Mayer was absent from the 
meetings of the Committee on Schools, 
Fire, Police and Civil Service on June 
22nd and June 25th, because he was 
out of the city on those dates. He

was likewise reported out of the city 
on July 9th, on which date the Com- 
mittee on Schools, Fire, Police and Civil 
Service held a meeting. 

Aid. Ricbert was absent from the 
Committee on 'Schools, vire. Police and 
Civil Service April 30th. The chairman 
on that date stated to the clerk that 
Aid. Richert had previously explained 
his inability to be present at the meet- 
ing. The Alderman was unable to at- 
tend a meeting of the Committee on Fi- 
nance May 3rd, because of illness. His 
absence from the Committee oh Local 
Transportation on May 8th, May 15th 
(two meetings) and May 22nd were 
due to the fact that he was out of the 
city as a member of the Garbage Com- 
mission. The same reason accounts for 
his non-attendance at a meeting of the 
Committee on Schools, Fire, Police and 
Civil Service on May 13th. His ab- 
sence from a meeting of the Commit- 
tee on Local Transportation on June 
3rd was stated to be due to his attend- 
ance at a meeting of the Garbage Com- 
mission at the same time. 

Aid. Carr's non-attendance at a 
meeting of the Committee on Local

Transportation on May 1st and May 
8th were reported to be due to his hav- 
ing taken his wife out of the city be-

8th, May 17th and June 17th, and from 
meetings of the Committee on Gas, Oil 
and Electric Light on July 18th and 
July 19th, were reported to be due to 
his being out of the city on those dates. 
The same fact explains his non-attend- 
ance at a meeting of the Committee on 
Harbors Wharves and Bridges on July 
19th. 

Aid. Helwig failed to attend a meet- 
ing of the Committee on Judiciary, 
State Legislation, Elections and Rules

Alderman had previously explained his 
inability to attend the meeting. 

Aid'. Clancy failed to attend a meet- 
ing of the Committee on Local Trans- 
portation on June 24th. He was re- 
ported to be out of the city. The same 
reason will explain his non-attendance 
at a meeting of the Committee on 
Buildings and City Hall held that day. 

Aid. Utpatel was absent from meet- 
ings of the Committee on License July 
8th and 15th, from the Committee on

ing of the Committee on Gas, Oil and

Chicago at the Association of Play- 
grounds and Small Parks. On May 27th 
he failed to attend a meeting of the 
Committee on Gas, Oil and Electric 
Light. He was reported to be out of 
the city. On July 18th and 19th his 



absences from the meetings of the Com- 
mittees on Gas, Oil and Electric Light 
and Finance were due to his being in 
Winnipeg as a; representative of the City 
of Chicago at the Town Planning Con- 
vention. 

Aid. Sitts' absence from the Commit- 
tee on Local Industries May 14th was 
due to his being out of the city as a 
member of the Garbage Commission. 

Aid. Walkowiak's non-attendance at 
meetings of the Committee on Gas, Oil 
and Electric Light July 18th and 19th 
were stated to be due to his being out 
of the city. The same reason explains 
his non-attendance at a meeting of the 
Committee on Judiciary, State Legisla- 
tion, Elections and Rules held July 
19th. 

Aid. Stewart was absent from the 
Committee on Local Transportation 
May 8th, May loth (two meetings) and

reason explains his non-attendance May 
16th at meetings of the Committees on 
Water and Gas, Oil and Electric Light. 

Aid. Bowler was reported to be out 
of the city on May 29th, which fact 
explains his non-attendance at a meet- 
ing of the Committee on Gas, Oil and 
Electric Light held that day. 

Aid. Krumholz's non-attendance at 
meetings of the Committees on Finance 
and Compensation held May 3rd was 
due to his having been confined to his 
home on that day through illness. 

Aid. Lipps' failure to attend a meet- 
ing of the Committee on Compensation 
held May 17th was due to his presence 
at a meeting of the Committee on (Lo- 
cal Transportation, which was in ses- 
sion at that time. 

Aid. Wilson's absence from the Com- 
mittee on Finance May 23rd was due to 
illness. 

Aid. Twigg was absent from a meet- 
ing of the Committee on Finance on 
April 26th. Previous to the time set 
for the meeting, he telephoned that the 
illness of his daughter would prevent 
his attendance. His non-attendance at 
a meeting of the Committee on Local 
Transportation May 8th, and of the 
Committee on Gas, Oil and Electric 
Light May 9th was due to the death 
of his daughter. On May 23rd and 24th 
his absences from the meetings of the 
Committees on Finance, Local Trans-

portation, and Gas, Oil and Electric Light 
were explained by his absence from the 
city on those days on account of the 
serious illness of his wife. This in- 
formation was conveyed in a telegram 
received by the chairman of the Com- 
mittee on Finance. His absence from 
the Committee on Local Transportation 
June 3rd was explained by him to be 
due to his having received no notice 
of the meeting until the evening of that 
day. On June 24th, he vs^as absent from 
a meeting of the same committee. He 
was reported at that time to be out of 
the city. 

Aid. Bergen failed to attend a meet- 
ing of the Committee on Local Trans- 
portation held June lOtn. He explained 
previously that attendance at a funeral 
woula prevent his attendance at the 
meeting. His absence from a meeting 
of the Committee on Local Transporta- 
tion on June 24th was reported to be 
due to his being out of the city. 

Aid. Fisher failed to attend a meet- 
ing of the Committee on Local Trans- 
portation April 24th. At that time he 
was reported to be in the East. Like- 
wise he was reported to be out of the 
city July 15th, when he failed to at- 
tend a meeting of the Committee on 
Local Industries. The same reason will 
explain his non-attendance at a meet- 
ing of the Committee on Local Trans- 
portation held the same day. 

Aid. William F. Ryan's non-attend- 
ance at a meeting of the Committee on 
Compensation May 10th was due to his 
being out of the city as a member of 
the Garbage Commission at that time. 
The same reason will explain his ab- 
sence May 14th from a meeting of the 
Committee on Harbors, Wharves and 
Bridges.

CITY ENGINEER. 

The Clerk presented the following re- 
port submitted by the City Engineer, 



which was referred to the select Com- 
mittee on Track Elevation: 

Department of Public AVorks, ] 
Bureau of Engineering, }■ 
Chicago, Sept. 26, 1912. J 
To the City Clerk, City of Chicago: 

Dear Sir — I return herewith Council 
order and. petition (referred June 13, 
1912, page 683) for the preparation of 
plans, specifications, etc.. for a subway 
underneath the tracks of the C, B. & 
Q. R. R. Co. at Springfield avenue and' 
2'3rd street, together with the follow- 
ing report. 

The accompanying plan shows the 
tracks of the C, B. & Q. R. Co., at 
this point. There are four main tracks 
upon the elevated roadbed. Just south- 
of this elevated roadbed a switch track 
belonging to the railroad company 
crosses the end of Springfield avenue. 
About 100 feet south of this a private 
track belonging to the Schoenhofen 
Brewing Company crosses Springfield 
avenue diagonally. 

Springfield avenue is 66 feet wide 
from 24th street to the south right of 
way line of the C, B. & Q. R. R. Co. 
It is only 33 feet wide north of the 
right of way, and is an unpaved street. 

I have prepared an estimate of the 
cost of a subway 33 feet wide between 
walls underneath the four main tracks 
of the C, B. & Q. R. R. The estimated 
cost of such a subway with approaches 
is $35,000.00. This estimate does not 
take into account the team track and 
the industry track crossing Springfield 
avenue south of the right of way. In- 
regard to these I have been advised by 
the Superintendent of Compensation 
that the team track is owned by the 
C. B. & Q. R. R. Co., and there is no 
ordinance granting them authority to 
cross Springfield avenue. 

Authority was granted to the Schoen- 
hofen Brewing Company to lay down 
the industry track by an ordinance 
passed by the City Council June 26,. 
1911, page 650 of the Covincil Proceed- 
ings of that date. 

This ordinance provides for the ele- 
vation of the track on 30 days' notice 
by the Commissioner of Public Works.. 
It is a fact, however, that the elevation 
of the track crossing Springfield ave- 
nue will necessitate either the re-ar- 
rangement or abandonment of the new 
plant of the Schoenhofen Brewing Com- 
pany on the west side of the street^ 
which this track supplies. 



September 30, 1912. 



COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. 



1745 



The subway should not be construct- 
ed without the elevation of the team 
track and the industry track, as it is 
always dangerous to have tracks cross- 
ing the approach to a subway, even 
though they be not in constant use. 

The estimate of $35,000.00 which I 
have submitted does not include the 
cost of elevating the team track and 
the industry track.

The following is the said ordinance as 
passed : 

Whereas, On June 22, 1908, the City 
Council of the City of Chicago passed 
an ordinance regulating the numbering 
of lots or houses in the City of Chicago, 
said ordinance being amended June 21, 
1909, and June 20, 1910, the later 
amendment becoming effective April 1, 
1911, and bringing the so-called "down 
town" district under the general terms 
of the ordinance; and 

Whereas, In the execution of said or- 
dinance by the Department of Public 
Works it was deemed advisable to al- 
low for a reasonable length of time the 
retention of the old numbers, such re- 
tention being for the purpose of over- 
coming, as much as possible, the con- 
fusion attendant upon such change of 
numbers ; and 

Whereas, Such reasonable length of 
time has elapsed; and 

Whiereas, Many buildings in the City 
of Chicago still display both old and 
new numbers, such condition being the 
cause of considerable uncertainty and 
confusion; now, therefore, 

Be it ordained by the City Council of 
the City of Chicago: 

Section 1. That it is hereby made 
the duty of the owner, agent or person 
in -possession of any building in the 
City of Chicago, to* remcn^e such old 
number forthwith. 

Section 2. Any person being the

owner, agent or person in possession of 
any building now erected in the City of 
Chicago, who shall for thirty days re- 
fuse or neglect to remove such old 
number from any such building owned 
or occupied by him, shall be fined five 
($5.00) dollars, and a further penalty 
of five ($5.00) dollars for every thirty 
days thereafter that he shall neglect or 
refuse so to remove such old number. 

Section 3. AH ordinances or parts 
of ordinances not in conformity here- 
with are hereby repealed. 

Section 4. This ordinance shall be 
in full force and effect from and alter 
its passage.

West 88th street. West 89th street and 
• West 90th street with Butler street), 
shall be so graded that after being thor- 
oughly puddled and rolled with a roller 
of ten (10) tons weight until the road- 
beds are thoroughly compacted, and af- 
ter the pavement hereinafter described 
shall have been placed thereon, the sur- 
face of the finished pavement at the 
center line of each of said above speci- 
fied streets and the surface of the fin- 
ished pavement of all intersecting 
streets extended from the curb line to 
the street line produced on each side 
of each of said above specified streets, 
shall coincide with the established ele- 
vation of center of roadway of said 
aboA-e specified streets hereinbefore de- 
scribed and the surface of the finished 
pavement adjoining the curb on the 
north side of the south roadway and on 
the south side of the north roadway of 
said West 87th street shall coincide 
with the curb grade of said West 87th 
street, hereinbefore described, and the 
surface of the finished roadways at the 
summits in the gutters between catch 
basins, and adjoining the roadway face 
of the curbs shall be four (4) inches 
below said established elevation, and 
the surface of the finished roadways at 
the catch basin inlets in the gutters 
adjoining the roadway face of the curbs 
shall be nine (9) inches below said es- 
tablished elevation. 

The slope of the gutters adjoining 
the roadway face of the curbs shall be 
uniform from the summits to the catch 
basins, and a transverse section of the 
finished surface of the pavement and 
gutter of the roadways of said West 
87th street shall be an arc of a circle 
passing through the said gutter eleva- 



tions and the established grade of the 
street adjoining the curb on the south 
side of the north roadway and on the 
north side of the south roadway, the 
center of said circle to lie in a vertical 
line passing through the curb on the 
south side of said north roadway and 
on the north side of said south road- 
way, at every part of said West 87th 
street between said points, and a trans- 
verse section of the finished surface of 
the pavement and gutters of said Em- 
erald avenue, said Union avenue, said 
Lowe avenue, said Wallace street, said 
Parnell avenue, said Eggleston avenue, 
said West 86th street, said West 88th 
street, said West 89th street and said

circle passing through the said gutter 
elevations and the established elevation 
of center of roadway of each of said 
above specified streets at every part of 
said above specified streets and at every 
part of all streets intersecting the sev- 
eral streets soeeified r'boA'e, between the 
points hereinbefore described. 

In all intersecting alleys hereinbe- 
fore specified, at the street lines pro- 
duced of said above specified streets, 
the surface of the finished pavement ad- 
joining the curb shall be even with the 
top of the curb, and the surface of the 
finished pavement at the center of the 
roadway of said alleys shall be three 
(3) inches below the top of the curb, 
and a transverse section of the finished 
surface of the pavement at the street 
lines produced of said above specified 
streets shall be an arc of a circle pass-

roadways. The surface of the said pave- 
ment thence shall slope gradually to 
meet the gutters hereinbefore specified. 

Upon the roadbeds thus prepared be- 
tween said points and between said gut- 
ters shall be spread a layer of blast 
furnace slag, free from dirt. Said slag 
shall be practically uniform in quality 
and ns near cubical in form as possible 
find broken so as to pass through a 
ring of four (4) inches internal diam- 
eter, and all the larger pieces shall ns 
far as practicable, be placed at the bot- 
tom of the layer. 

Said layer of slag shall be covered 
with fine slag or other material equal 
thereto for bonding purposes in such 
quantity so as to fill all the interstices 
in said layer of slag. The thickness of 
said layer as thus bonded after being

flooded with water and thoroughly rolled 
to an even and unyielding surface with 
a steam roller of ten (10) tons weight 
shall be five (5) inches. 

Upon said layer of slag shall be 
spread a second layer of blast furnace 
slag, free from dirt. Said slag shall be 
practically uniform in quality and as 
near cubical in form as possible and 
broken so as to pass through a ring of 
two (2) inches internal diameter, 
which layer of slag shall be covered 
with fine slag or other material equal 
thereto for bonding purposes in such 
quantity as to fill all the interstices 
in said layer of 'slag. Said layer of 
slag shall be wetted and rolled with a 
roller of ten (10) tons weight until 
the same is thoroughly bonded, solid 
and unyielding. The thickness of said 
second layer of slag after being thus 
rolled shall be three (3) inches. 

Upon said second layer of sla,g shall 
be spread a layer of the best quality of 
broken granite crushed to a size that 
will pass through a ring of two (2) 
inches internal diameter and be held 
on a ring of one (1) inch internal di- 
ameter. Said layer of broken orahite 
shall be rolled with a roller of ten (10) 
tons weight until the same is brought to 
a true and uniform surface, after which 
asphaltic cement in the proportion of 
one and one-half (1%) gallons to each 
square yard of surface shall be poured 
over it in such a manner as to thor- 
oughly and uniformly coat the granite. 
At the time of the application of said 
asphaltic cement the granite must be 
in a bone-dry condition. 

Immediately after applying the as- 
phaltic cement, the surface shall be cov- 
ered with bone-dry granite, free from 
dirt, crushed to a size that will pass 
through a ring of one-half (i/^) inch 
internal diameter and be held on a ring 
of one-fourth ( 14 ) inch internal diam- 
eter, in sufficient quantity so as to fill 
all the interstices in the above course 
and then shall be thoroughly rolled with 
a steam roller of ten (10) tons M-eight 
until the said granite is thoroughly 
bonded in this layer. 

The roadways shall then be swept and 
any excess of granite removed, after 
which asphaltic cement in the proper 
tion of one-half (i/o) gallon to each 
square yard of surface shall be poured 
over the same. The surface of the pave- 
ment shall then receive a one-fourth 



( ^ ) inch dressing of granite, free 
from dust. 

The entire surface of the roadways as 
thus improved, shall then be rolled with 
a steam roller of ten (10) tons weight 
until the same is thoroughly bonded, 
and of a true, uniform and unyielding 
surface. The thickness of said layer 
when bonded as hereinbefore descriljed 
shall be two and one-half (2^/^) inches. 

The asphaltic cement ^ shall comply 
with the following requirements: The 
asphaltic cement shall have a specific 
gravity at seventy-seven (77) degrees 
Fahrenheit of not less than ninety-seven 
one-hundredths (.97). 

nie bitumen of the asphaltic cement 
shall be soluble in carbon tetra chloride 
to the extent of at least ninety-eight 
and one-half (98J^2) per cent. 

The fixed carbon of the asphaltic ce- 
ment shall be not less than eight (8) 
nor more than fifteen ( 15 ) per cent. 

The melting or softening point of the 
asphaltic cement shall be not less than 
one hundred (100) degrees Fahrenheit 
nor more than one hundred and thirty- 
five (135) degrees Fahrenheit. 

The asphaltic cement shall have a 
penetration of from eighty (80) to one 
hundred and fifty (150) degrees, which 
shall be varied wnthin these limits to 
adapt it to the particular asphalt and 
flux used, and to conditions of the 
streets. 

When fifty (50) grams of the asphal- 
tic cement of the consistency used in 
the paving mixture are heated for five 

(5) hours at a temperature of three 
hundred and twenty-five (325) degrees 
Fahrenheit, in a tin box two and one- 
quarter (214) inches in diameter, there 
must not be volatilized more than five 

(5) per cent, of the bitumen, nor shall 
the penetration after such heating 'be 
less than one-half ( 14 ) the original 
penetration. 

A briquette of the asphaltic cement of 
a consistency equivalent to eighty (80) 
penetration shall have a ductility of at 
least ten (10) centimeters. 

The asphaltic cement used in the 
above proposed improvement shall be 
applied at a temperature of not less 
than three hundred (300) degrees 
Fahrenheit.

a layer of Portland cement concrete 
twenty-fooir (24) inches in length, 
thirteen (13) inches in width and six 
(6) inches in depth. The roadway face 
of said layer shall conform with the 
roadway face of the curbstones and 
twelve (12) inches of each end of 
each of said curbstones shall rest upon 
said layer. A layer of Portland cement 
concrete twenty-four (24) inchesi in 
length, six (6) inches in width and 
eleven (11) inches in depth shall be

The following is the said order as

Whereas, The Committee on Build-

provide tliat the Commission.er of Pub- 
lic Works shall act upon said certifi- 
cate by signing a voucher for final pay- 
ment to the contractor within thirty 
days of the date of the said certificate; 
and 

Whereas, The committee is in re- 
ceipt of a communication from the 

Commissioner of Public >>'orks under 
date of Sept. 23, 1912, as follows: 

"To the Honorable, the Committee on 
Buildings and City Hall: 

Gentlemen" — The following general 
report on all branches of the work 
embraced under the general contract 
for the construction of the City Hall 
Building is respectfully submitted 
vvith the statement that items listed 
should require attention with the ex- 
pense of additional labor and mate- 
rial : 

GRANITE. 

The door sills at the La Salle, 
W^ashington and Randolph street en- 
trances are below the sidewalk grade, 
thereby forming pockets for snow an^ 
water. This will require the cutting 
down of the concrete sidewalk, so as 
to gain proper drain, or the cut- 
ting of "V" gutters in the sidewalk 
from door sill to street. 

The cap moulding over all the en- 
trances are not provided with a gut- 
ter and pitch towards the sidewalk. 
This throws the water onto the pub- 
lic entering the building. As a rem- 
edy v/ould suggest the cutting of gut- 
ters on the top, so as to throw the 
water to the sides instead of the front. 
Prom the drawings it appears that 
the cutting of this granite is in 
strict accordance with the drawings. 
The raggles required for the incision 
and attachment to the metal and 
other work at comfort stations have 



been omitted. The open jo^nt per- 
mits the seepage and dripping of 
water onto the stairs. 

MASONRY. 

The walls forming curb ends of saw 
tooth skyligiits on roof will require 
relaying of brick and general repoint- 
ing. The fire wall at the lot line be- 
tween the County and City Hall 
buildings, to comply with the ordi- 
nance of 1908, will require additional 
brick work to carry it to a height of 
three feet above the roof. The mor- 
tar of the enameled brick in the light 
court in many cases has disinte- 
grated and is not weathering. The el- 
evator walls from sidewalk to sub- 
basement at machinery will require 
rebuilding to prevent the freezing of 
elevator water mains. 

terra cotta. 

The lips covering joints of terra 
cotta wall coping on the roof in some 
instances are splitting off. This per- 
mits the water to enter the joint and 
disintegrate the wall and brick work 
under same. 

iron other than structural. 

The freight elevator door in the 
Randolph street sidewalk requires re- 
inforcing to withstand the traffic. As 
now installed, the leaves sag below 
the sidewalk level and do not fit 
properly. The iron walks over the 
boilers are so set that they cannot 
be reached from the ladders leading 
to them, and are therefore useless. 

ornamiental metal. 

The general design of the combina- 
tion cast iron, marble and glass par- 
tition is such that constant breakage 
of glass occurs. The wood frame con- 
struction provided for the support of 
the marble counter tops is not satis- 
factory. The marble is out of align- 
ment and is constantly sagging; the 
oates are working loose, due the 
lack of proper fastening of hinge 
pieces. 

The name plates on the first floor 
directory board are not identical. 
When the board was installed one 
side read "City Hall" and the other 
"Cook County Court House." In or- 
der to remedy this error, a new plate 
was cast bearing the City Hall in- 
scription and attached to the board, 
over the County inscription.

CARPENTRY. 

In a communication to your Hon- 
orable Committee, attention has been 
called to the imperfect fitting of the 
pivoted window sash throughout the 
building, with a statement that this 
sash has been installed according to 
the plans and specifications, with a 
recommendation that metal weather 
strips or wood moulding be installed. 

The specifications for windows re- 
quire that the joints Detween mason- 
ry and wood work be caulked. From 
indications it appears that the work 
is not workmanlike, because the plas- 
tered walls are dust stained at the 
wood casing. To remedy the imper- 
fect fitting of the aoubie hung sash 
a wood strip was nailed to the sash. 
This in tip^^e will work loose and leave 
sash in the original defective condi- 
tion. 

LATHING AND PLASTERING. 

The plastering of the office divid- 
ing marble and plaster partition at 
the gates has tallen off. This is due 
to the fact that the plastering was 
applied to the supporting steel with- 
out wire lathing. It is not possible 
to form a plaster key against a solid 
piece of metal. 

The metal corner beads required on 
all sharp corners have been omitted 
in many instances. Tlse beads were 
intended to prevent the damaging of 
exposed plaster corners, and by their 
omission subject these corners to con- 
stant damage. 

ROOFING AND SHEET METAL WORK. 

The copper on the roof of the sky- 
lights on the roof of the building is 
fastened to the brick work with wire 
and nails. There is constant danger 
of this working loose and the decks 
blowing into the street. A more sat- 
isfactory arrangement should be pro- 
vided, and provision should also be 
made for expension and contraction 
of the n^etnl. The %-inch cable pull 
for skylights in each group of ele- 
vators extending the full height of 
shaft and arranged to open from any 
floor in the building has not been 
provided. 

DRAINAGE, PLUMBING AND GAS FITTING. 

In installjnsf the hydraulic book 
lift for the City Collector and City 
Clerk, drains to the sewer have not 
been provided. There is danger, in 



case of a breakdown, tnat these quar- 
ters would be flooded; also the drain 
for the pit for elevator No. 7 in the 
basement has not been installed and 
the traps at the base of the vent 
shafts have been omitted. 

PAINTING AND GLAZING. 

The requirements for plate glass 
signs in the open spaces of the com- 
bination marble, glass and metal par- 
titions have not been complied with. 
Furthermore, no art glass is in the 
sash of the Council Cbamber, which 
was to be provided at a cost of 
$2,500.00. 

HEATING. 

The requirements of the heating 
specifications are such that an 
amount of radiation should be in- 
stalled sufliciently to heat the build- 
ing, exclusive of the heat derived 
from the vent system, to 72 degrees 
with the outside temperature at 10 
degrees below zero. From observa- 
tion taken during the last winter, it 
appears that the radiation is not 
properly distributed, and will require 
the removal of some radiators in 
some quarters of the building and 
placing them in other quarters, prin- 
cipally the first and second floors. In 
addition to the above, where the pipes 
pass through plaster partitions, 
sleeves have not been provided, and 
expansion of the system continually 
cracks and defaces the plaster. 

VENTILATION. 

The arrangement of the tempera- 
ture and heating coils are such that 
last winter several of the coils froze 
and split, due to improper circula- 
tion in the system. To remedy thi* 
will require the installation of addi- 
tional piping to produce the proper 
circulation. 

The register faces of the vent sys- 
tem are not fitted close to the plas- 
ter and vent ducts. This permits 
the escape of air around the face, 
disfiguring the walls and plaster. 
Furthermore, the adjustment of the 
register dampers in the Council 
Cliamber is silch that the distribution 
of air is not uniform. Some of the 
outlets get as high as 234 cubic feet 
per minute, while 150 cubic feet per 
minute is the required amount, while 
in others the rate of 62 cubic feet 
per minute is called for and only 19 
cubic feet per minute delivered.

VACUUM CLEANING SYSTEM. 

The discharge line of the vacuum 
cleaning apparatus has not been pro- 
vided with a muffler. The noise 
from this is unbearable, being similar 
to an automobile without a muffler; 
also the scrubbing tanks are mounted 
on trucks and of such a height that 
they will not pass under the top 
jams of the doors of the vault floor. 

ELECTRIC WIRING. 

The bracket outlets on the va- 
rious floors are placed at such a 
height that the public are in danger 
of injury due to the low position. 
Circuits leading; to the various de- 
partments should be provided with 
meter loops so that the consumption 
of current in each department may be 
measured. 

Yours very truly, 
(Signed) L. E. McGann, 

Commissioner of Public Works. 
Respectfully recommended : 
(Signed) Chas. W. Kallal, 

City Architect."

Whereas, It is a well known fact that 
during the construction of the connec- 
tion between the Calumet River and 
the Main Drainage Canal at the Sag, 
the territory tributary to, or supplied 
with water from the 68th Street Crib 
is in danger of an epidemic of some wa- 
ter borne disease, because of the dis- 
charge of the Calumet River, including 
the sewage of South Chicago, Gary and 
the adjacent territory; and 

Whereas, The present method em- 
ployed to drain the Stock Yards and 
Packingtown is unsanitary and a men- 
ace to the health of the entire city, and 
is inadequate to provide for the present 
flow without considering future growth, 
and that the stream "Bubbly Creek," 
into which the sewage is delivered, is

notorious as a reservoir of all kinds of 
filth and offal; and 

Whereas, I'he North Branch of the 
river is daily becoming more polluted, 
even after the diluting water from the 
Wilmette Channel has been added, 
and before the sewage from Evanston 
and vicinity has been discharged there- 
in; and 

Whereas, It is a recognized fact, that 
the Drainage Canal is incapable of puri- 
fying the daily production of sewage, 
and that its efficiency is reduced be- 
cause of the deposit of solids on the 
bottom, and which deposit is daily aug- 
mented by the" addition of about 1,000 
tons of dry solids, and which has de- 
creased the cross section and increased 
the velocity of the current to such an 
extent that navigation thereon is be- 
coming difficult; therefore, be it 

Ordered, That the Committee on 
Health confer with the Trustees of the 
Sanitary District or a Committee of 
that body, having in view the consid- 
eration and formulation of a plan by 
which, through co-operation of com- 
bined interests, a remedy may be 
evolved whereby the aforesaid mentioned 
evils can be eliminated, and that a 
copy of this resolution be sent to the 
Secretary of the Board of Sanitary 
Trustees with a request that they take 
what action may seem best in the mat- 
ter. 

Aid. Cullerton and Bewersdorf pre- 
sented the following order, which was, 
on motion, duly passed: 

Ordered, That the Commissioner of

reasons indicated and stated in said list 
of claims. 

And the claims to be decreased are as 
follows : 

Heath & Milligan, 66 South Canal 
street, $1.47. Reason: This claim is

sion of said property.

Law Department, | 
Chicago, October 14, 1912. j 

In re Cold Storage regulation ordi- 
nance. 

Hon. Garter H. Harrison, Mayor. 

Dear Sir — ^You referred to this de- 
partment an ordinance regulating cold 
storage warehouses, passed by the City 
Council on October 7, 1912 ( C. P. 1922-3 ) 
and asked to be advised as to its valid- 
ity. You also turned over certain let- 
ters concerning same, among which are 
protests from the Chicago Board of 
Trade, Chicago Live Poultry Board and 
Booth Fisheries Company. 

These protests deal more particularly 
with the propriety of enacting certain 
provisions than with the legality of 
same, but we nevertheless take up the 
objections urged therein, as well as 



others that have reached us, so that 
you may have them before you. 

The City Council at one time called 
for an opinion from the Corporation 
Counsel, as to the validity of this ordi- 
nance. (C. P. September 30, 1912, p. 
1849.) By some mistake the matter 
was overlooked. Consequently this is 
the first time this department has had 
occasion to make a study of the provi- 
sions of the ordinance in order to deter- 
mine with certainty whether it would 
stand the test of validity.' Even after 
the closest scrutiny we are unable to 
say what a court will do with it, but 
we point out a way to overcome the 
doubt. 

We find the ordinance weak in two 
places. The adoption of reasonable 
rules by the Commissioner of Health, 
if such rules are to govern the conduct 
of the class of persons affected by the 
ordinance, would probably be regarded 
as a delegation of power not warranted 
by law, although this would perhaps 
not be sufficient to invalidate the ordi- 
nance. The other weak feature, much 
more im.portant than this, is the pro- 
hibition of the sale of such goods after 
a certain lapse of time, regardless of 
their condition. There is danger that 
this may be held an invasion, of the 
property rights of the owner. 

Aside from these doubtful proposi- 
tions, we eall attention to a provision 
of Section 5, whereby a report' is re- 
quired of the quantities of foodstuffs 
on hand, but not of the time when they 
were placed in cold storage, and sug- 
gest that the reason for requiring the 
report as to quantities would become 
stronger if the age of the goods were 
likeAvise reported. We also note that 
the wording of Section 8, which was 
amended at the time the ordinance was 
up for passage may give rise to a ques- 
tion as to whether this section applies 
to any other than over-kept products. 
We, therefore, recommend that after the 
word "and" and before the word "with- 
out", in the eighth line thereof, there 
be inserted the words "it shall be un- 
lawful to sell or offer for sale any food 
which has been kept in cold storage." 

The ordinance in question when first 
presented to the City Council was an 
exact copy of the cold storage law, of 
the State of New York, which was en- 
acted in 1911 as a part of the Public 
Health Law. Thene were only such

changes as were necessary to make it an 
ordinance instead of a statute and to 
give authority to city instead of state 
officers. The only important amend- 
ment made to the original draft is that 
the time for keeping fish has been lim- 
ited to six months instead of ten. 

We do not understand that the right 
of the city to legislate generally on the 
subject has ever been attacked. Under 
the power to regulate the sale of pro- 
visions (Clause 50) to regulate the in- 
spection of same (Clause 53)^ to make 
regulations necessary or expedient for 
the promotion of health (Clause 78), 
and other grants, the municipality has 
sufficient authority over the subject 
matter to enact an ordinance of this 
"haracter. Such statutes and ordinances 
ave been upheld as a proper exercise 
"bf the police power. 

Freund on Police Power, Sec. 297. 

, North American Cold Storage Com- 
any vs. City of Chicago, 211 U. S. 306. 

We will, therefore, take up the ob- 
jections urged in detail in order to d*e- 
termine whether this power would be 
unlawfully exercised in the proposed 
rdinance, and then again take up the 
ain defect noted. 

The first objection made by the at- 
orney representing the cold storage in- 
terests before the Committee on Ju- 
diciary, etc., was to the effect that the 
business of cold storage warehouseman 
or the business of refrigerating was not 
^expressly defined, and that this would 
.d to a misapprehension as to the ap- 
licability of the ordinance so that it 
Would hamper a concern even to the 
extent of interfering with the free use 
of an ice box. 

We do not coincide v/ith this view, 
because judicial interpretation of the 
terms used has given them a fixed 
meaning. 

Allen vs. Somers, 52 L. R. A. 106. 

Stewart vs. Atlanta Beef Co., 93 Ga, 
12. 

It is next contended that the provi- 
sions of the ordinance which apply to 
warehousemen will also apply to the 
packers of meats, whose products be- 
fore being placed in cold storage are al- 
eady under governmental supervision. 
This interpretation of the ordinance is 
wrong, for there is nothing in the ordi- 
nance which makes it '^applicable Hx) 



such a plant unless it is a public ware- 
house. In the case last cited above it 
was held that "doing a cold-storage 
business" as used in an act imposing a 
tax on "all packing houses doing a cold 
storage business" did not include a pack- 
ing house which used cold storage for 
preserving only its own commodities. 

At this point it is proper to consider 
the objection urged by the Chicago Board 
of Trade. This is to the effect that the 
ordinance will interfere with the pro- 
vision trade of the city as it affects 
warehouses where cured meats and 
lards are stored. Attention is called to 
the fact that these products are placed 
in cold storage under rigid government 
inspection, that they may be preserved 
indefinitely and that they come with- 
in the purview of this ordinance 
only by reason of an oversight on the 
part of the City Council, since these 
warehousemen stand on a different foot- 
ing from the regular cold storage ware- 
housemen. 

It is further suggested in the protest 
that if to the exceptions noted in Sec- 
tion 1 were added an exception of 
"cured meats or meats in process of cur- 
ing and cooked animal fatsi" all objec- 
tion on the part of the Board of Trade 
Avould be overcome. It is obvious that 
there is no legal question involved in 
this particular, but if it is desirable to 
except such food products it can be 
readily done by adding the words re- 
quested together with a clause indicat- 
ing that the exception is made by rea- 
son of the inspection of the Federal 
Government. 

It is urged on behalf of the Booth 
Fisheries Company that the cutting 
down of the time during which fish may 
be retained in cold storage will result 
in depriving the people of a cheap article 
of food without sufficient cause for mak- 
ing such a limitation. This is also a 
question of fact rather than one of law, 
for it cannot be said that the limitation 
on fish constitutes a discrimination if 
there is reason for making the distinc- 
tion. 

It is claimed on behalf of the Chicago 
Live Poultry Board that from $30,000 
to $35,000 worth of live poultry comes 
into the city each day, and that this 
trade would be affected by the ordi- 
nance. It is stated that the ordinance 
is unjust because it prohibits the sale of 
the commodity after it has been in cold

storage for ten months, also that it dis- 
criminates in favor of those who oper- 
ate their own cold storage rooms as 
against others who are compelled to use 
the cold storage facilities of the ware- 
houses. 

On the question of discrimination it 
will be observed that this institution 
recognizes the distinction which the or- 
dinance makes between the warehouse- 
man and others, but they go to the ex- 
treme in assuming that there is no re- 
striction placed on persons operating a 
refrigerating or cold storage plant pri- 
vately. 

While the two classes are treated dif- 
ferently in the ordinance, we do not re- 
gard the distinction in the light of an 
illegal discrimination. It operates on all 
in the same class alike, warehousemen 
being included within all of its provi- 
sions and all other operators of cold 
storage and refrigerating plants within 
some of them. The provisions of Sec- 
tions 1, 4, 7, 8, 9 and 10 apply to both 
classes. 

It cannot be said that there is no rea- 
son for drawing the distinctions be- 
tween warehousemen and others, while 
so far as the product and its sale is 
concerned, that is subject to like in- 
spection, marking, and other restrictions 
whether it comes from one class or the 
other. 

Consequently we are unable to dis- 
cover an unlawful discrimination, and 
find no reason for the assertion that the 
ordinance would result in an unlawful 
restraint of trade or t^ie building up of 
a monopoly. 

As stated above, we find one feature 
of the ordinance that is subject to grave 
doubt. That is the provision prohibit- 
ing the sale of a cold storage product 
after a certain time without further 
inspection and regardless of its con- 
dition. 

While the courts have gone very far 
in upholding laws which tend to the 
preservation of health, and have even 
sanctioned the summary seizure of food 
stuffs when the proper health officer 
has condemned them, we are unable to 
find an adjudicated case where the mere 
lapse of time, without an inspection 
and determination of the condition, is 
held sufficient to deprive the owner of 
his property rights in same. 

It is possible that our courts would 



hold that the municipality has the right 
to fix such a limit on the same theory 
that it has the right to regulate the 
source of supply and preliminary 
treatment of milk and prohibit the sale 
of any that does not conform thereto. 
(People vs. Van de Carr, 199 U. S. 552), 
but we cannot say that such a decision 
is likely. There is, in fact, so much 
doubt on this point, that we feel con- 
strained to recommend a provision for 
a rigid inspection at the end of the 
period fixed and an extension for a 
limited time to be determined on such 
inspection under strict requirements 
for a report on same and publicity in 
its sale. 

With such a provision added as we 
recommend, we are convinced that the 
ordinance will sucQessfully w'ithstand 
attack. Without same its validity is 
uncertain and can only be determined 
after a test. 

Yours respectfully,

Further amend the ordinance by 
amending Section 8 thereof so as to 
read as follows: 

"Section 8. Sales Prohibited — In- 
spection — ^Extension of Time — ^Mark- 
ing of Goods Sold.) It shall be unlaw- 
V ful for any person, firm or corporation 
to sell or offer for sale within the City 
of Chicago, either at wholesale or re- 
tail, any food which has been kept in 
cold storage for a period of time 
longer than that provided for in Sec- 
tion 3 of this ordinance except with 
the consent of the Commissioner of 
Health as hereinafter provided. 

The Commissioner of Health may 
upon application extend the period of 
storage beyond the time prescribed 
in Section 3 of this ordinance for any 
particular lot of goods if the goods 
in question axe found upon inspection 
and examination by the Commissioner 
of Health to be in proper condition 
for further storage at the end of said 
period. The length of time for which 
further storage is allowed shall be 
specified in the order granting the ex- 
tension. A report on each case in 
which such extension of storage may 
be permitted including information 
relating to the reason for the action

kind and the amount of goods for 
which thle storage period was ex- 
tended and the length of time for 
which the extension was granted shall 
be included in the annual report of 
the Commissioner of Health. 

It shall be unlawful for any person, 
firm or corporation to sell or offer for 
sale within the City of Chicago either 
at wholesale or retail any food which 
has been kept in cold storage without 
having the said food or the package 
containing the same printed, stamped 
or marked in some conspicuous place 
for the ready information of the pur- 
chaser thereof with a statement to the 
effect that said food has been kept in 
cold storage, together with the day,

same was received in cold storage, 
and the day, the month and the year 
when the same was removed from 
cold storage."

To the Honorable, the City Council: 

Gentlemen — Section 2471 of The Chi-

missioner of Public Works to permit 
stands to be maintained on public 
streets, which shall be used for the pur- 
pose of exhibiting for sale daily news- 
papers printed and published in Chi- 
cago. 

I am advised by the Chief of Police 
that a large number of stands through- 
out the city sell not only daily news- 
papers printed and published in Chicago, 
but periodicals published in other 
cities. 

I transmit herewith a list of a few of 
these news stands, and would suggest 
the reference thereof to your Committee 
on Judiciary to consider whether Sec- 
tion 2471 should be amended, making 
the sale of these periodicals on street 
stands legal, or whether the Police De- 
partment should rigidly enforce the pro- 
visions of this section and allow news- 
stands to sell nothing except daily 
newspp.pers printed and published in 
this city. 

I hesitate to enforce the provisions of 
Section 2471, because the sale of outside 
periodicals has been going on on these 
stands for a number of years, and an 
abrupt termination of the privilege 
would not only seriously affect the pub- 
lishers as well as citizens in the habit 
of making their purchases at these 
stands, but would also work a hardship 
on the venders in control of the stands.

To the Honorahle City Council: 

At a general meeting of our Federa-

members of the City Council be requested 
to oppose any franchise or grant of any 
kind to the Pennsylvania E,. R. Co. in 
connection with their contemplated pas- 
senger depot until they have made suit- 
able provisions for the elevation of their 
tracks running parallel to and between 
Carroll avenue and Kinzie street, from 
Ada street to Desplaines street. 

These tracks are now running at grade, 
and crossing such prominent streets as 
May street, Centre avenue, Carpenter 
street, Morgan street, Peoria street, 
Green street and Union street, and are, 
without question, the most dangerous 
crossings that have ever existed in Chi-

COMMISSIONER OF TRACK ELE- 
VATION. 

The Clerk presented the following 
communication, submitted by the Com- 
missioner of Track Elevation, which 
was referred to the select Committee 
on Track Elevation: 



Department of Track Elevation, \ 
Chicago, October 11, 1912. j 

To the Honorable, the City Council of 
the City of Chicago: 

In compliance with the order passed 
by the City Council September 30, 1912, 
the following report regarding the pro- 
gress of track elevation work now be- 
ing done by the Chicago & Alton Rail- 
road Company is herewith submitted: 

The subways provided for by these 
ordinances, remaining uncompleted at 
the beginning of the present year are, 
as follows: 

Oakley avenue. 
Western avenue. 
Maplewood avenue. 
Washtenaw avenue. 
California avenue. 
Albany avenue. 
Kedzie avenue. 

These subways are being elevated 
under two ordinances, one of which was 
passed January 15, 1900, and another 
passed April 5, 1911. The subways at 
Oakley avenue. Western avenue, and 
Kedzie avenue are now practically com- 
pleted and in the condition required by 
the ordinance. 

The subways at California avenue and 
at Albany avenue have not yet been con- 
structed. The ordinance requires that 
the tracks at these two streets should 
be on temporary bridges by November 
30, 1912. The officials of the railroad 
say that they expect to have these 
tracks elevated within the time pro- 
vided by the ordinance. 

The ordinance requires that the two 
main tracks crossing Washtenaw avenue 
shall be elevated on bridges by Novem- 
ber 30, 1912. The tracks are now ele- 
vated on a filled embankment with a 
foot passage beneath them. With the 
exception of the subway at Maplewood 
avenue the track elevation work now

The following is the said resolution 
as adopted: 

Whereas^ During the past months a 
strike by the employes of the various 
street railway companies operating in 
the City of Chicago has been immi- 
nent because of the differences between 
said railway companies and their em- 
ployes over the question of wages and 
other questions of importance; 

Whereas, Also, Through the inter- 
vention of His Honor, the Mayor, a 
Board of Arbitration has been selected, 
consisting of Orrin N. Carter, one of 
the Justices of the Supreme Court of 
Hlinois, Kickham S'canlon, one of the 
Judges of the Circuit Court of Cook 
County, and Harvey B. Fleming, Vice- 
President of the Chicago City Railway 
Company, and is about to consider said 
differences and hear arguments in be- 
half of both parties to said controversy; 

Whereas, Also, Under the traction 
ordinances of 1907 the City of Chicago 
receives 55 per cent of the net receipts 
from the operation of said street rail- 
way companies so operated in the City 



of Chicago, and under said ordinance 
as drafted, in the event of strikes, the 
street railway companies are excused 
from the full performance of their or- 
dinary legal obligations to operate street 
cars in the City of Chicago; 

Whereas, Also, The City of Chicago, 
by reason of said ordinances, is interested 
in the continued operation of said street 
railways and will suffer severe financial 
loss if the operation of said railways 
is suspended by reason of strikes or 
other differences or controversies arising 
between said railway companies and 
their employes; 

Whereas, Also, The City Council of 
the City of Chicago recognizes that the 
cost of living in recent years has tre- 
mendously increased and that there has 
not been a corresponding increase in the 
wages of the employes of the street rail- 
way companies; and 

Whereas, This Council is of the firm 
belief that efficient, honest and compe- 
tent service can only be obtained where 
a wage is paid which is fair and com- 
mensurate with the cost of peisonal 
maintenance in a dece.it '^nd respectable 
style and degree; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the City Council of the 
City of Chicago hereby earnestly recom- 
mends to the Board of Arbitration 
created as hereinabove stated that any 
consideration of said differences between 
the said street railway companies and 
their employes, that said Board give 
careful heed to the demands of said 
employes for an increased wage scale, 
and the City Council hereby declares 
that in its judgment said railway com- 
panies' employes are entitled to an in- 
crease in wages. 

Be It Further Resolved, That a copy 
of this resolution be forAvarded to the 
Board of Arbitration by the City Clerk.
